...project (blue) Raven was coming along nicely re. GPU performance evaluations...         ...until I discovered a problem (or three) with EKWB's ""quality"" (more on that in

And I thought the 475W on my cards was a lot.. I do know that it's not a good idea to try an unlocked bios without water, might make the board a bit crispy At least you have enough PSU's to choos

More boxes arrived today...among other things, the DDR4 4000 CL15 (4x8 Samsung-B) kit for the CH8 Dark / 5950X; for now running it at tight sub-timings and undervolting it for IF1900 / DDR4 3800 befor

I can imagine that this creation takes up a lot of space, with all the hardware above and all the carts tables etc. So I do understand them a little :classic_laugh:

Looking good so far 💪


 ...today was furniture assembly day - only had a few bits left over (who reads instructions anyway) ? One hallway cleared, one hallway ('the parking lot') to go  :classic_laugh:


Also, when I grew up in Europe and teased my two older sisters, they would say things like 'when God created men, she was only kidding'...I really shouldn't have shared that in my household now, because it is spreading like wildfire at dinner parties...  🤐

Loving this. Can't wait to see more.


 ...glad to see you here...looking forward to your suggestions 👍


I don't know what I like less, assembling furniture, or chasing down memory optimization rabbit holes...Per earlier post, I recently added new RAM (Samsung-B 4000 / CL15) for the 5950X...daily is still a undervolted IF 1900 / DDR4 3800 14-14-14, but IF 2000 / DDR4 4000 does work after some rudimentary tests on the system...I had the Asus Dark Hero / AM4 5950X for 3+ months now and am quite comfortable 'pushing it' a bit...still, DDR4 4000 needs a revisit during a rainy day, now that I know that the IF can handle it.





...some earlier comparable runs for 'the other Ravens' at daily settings (AM4 3950X and TR 2950X):





...and here are some earlier 'max' results for video cards for error-free settings for GPUs and VRAM 'on air'- albeit at only light rendering loads...full long-run 3D results will be lower, though both get a water-block...

Looking forward to  catching up on everything" 


...worth repeating that this is a productivity+play build. It doesn't have an 'unlimited budget', but it does have a decent budget envelope to satisfy the function brief, after a year of 'temporary' pandemic stop-gaps for capacity at different locations. One key item to check was the transfer of various older (sometimes proprietary) software onto the 3950X / Radeon 6900 XT combo, which will become the primary new daily slogger; and that combo is also the only one with eMail etc...


On the other hand, the TR 2950X will likely become 'the file serer', among other functions, what with its capabilities to run 7x M.2 and also a U.2, even  before any SSDs.




Now that the furniture additions are assembled, it is time to start thinking about drilling, cutting and tapping into the TT Core P8 case 🙃
